Extremely hard to come by in Japan. Beef marrow bones from happy free-range cows. All free of antibiotics and growth hormones. Grass-fed on massive pasture their entire life and grain-finished for 200 days on vegetarian feed. These are the highest quality of marrow bones you can lay hands on in Japan. We guarantee that - or get your money back. Marrow bones have recently started to show up on gourmet restaurant menus - vertically cut into canoe style. You can use marrow bones to make super healthy bone broth, or you can roast the bones and use the marrow the same way you would use butter spread it on your toast like in our example. Or cook steaks, eggs, or roast vegetables with it - the same you'd use ghee.
Why is it so difficult to find imported (grass-fed, free-range) marrow bones in Japan? Beef marrow bones are very heavy and bulky. Making transportation costs to Japan more expensive than the product itself. This is the main reason you won't likely find imported marrow bones anywhere else in Japan. The second reason is the lack of incentives for farmers. Exporting marrow bones is not a lucrative business and the bones are therefore sold locally for the market value. We work very closely with the Morgan Ranch in Nebraska and are able to import a limited amount of marrow bones together with our regular products when there is room left in our container. Please expect this product not to be available all year round.

There are many ways to serve marrow bones. The gourmet-style way is to simply bake the bones in the oven to serve for scooping. For this, you need to defrost the bones in the fridge for at least 24h. Do not defrost in water or on the countertop.
Place on an oven tray and use a baking sheet if necessary. The marrow in the bone will melt. Make sure the bones are standing and not laying.
Season with freshly ground pepper and sea salt. Nothing else.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and place the bones in the middle for 30 minutes.
Soon after the marrow will start to bubble and liquify. Remove from the oven and serve while still warm. Sprinkle with parsley if at hand.
You can easily scoop the marrow with a small teaspoon. Spread on a piece of toasted bread. If you want to get real fancy, consider one of the marrow bone scoops that are available out there. Enjoy!
